JACKSON, Ala. (AP) — The state is planning more than 100 projects to improve roads and bridges across Alabama.
Gov. Robert Bentley will be in the southwest Alabama town of Jackson on Thursday to announce a list of the work. Another news conference will be held later in the day in Birmingham.
The projects will be funded through the Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program, or ATRIP.
The program includes road and bridge improvements that officials say are needed throughout rural Alabama. It will also address transportation needs in larger cities.
